Belle Isle, Jewel of Detroit
A presentation by Lori Feret
Lori Feret, Belle Isle volunteer and guide, local historian, and lighthouse expert will be presenting the history of Belle Isle, the unique island oasis located near the heart of the City of Detroit.
Lori will be exploring the ownership of the island from the Native Americans, to the French, to the British, and now, the 102nd Michigan State Park.
We will visit Belle Isle through the seasons via a narrated slide show.
Some of the topics covered in Lori's Belle Isle blog include:
The Belle Isle Conservatory
The Scott Fountain
Horses on Belle Isle
Ecological War on Belle Isle
Belle Isle activities
The thing that I find really super about that end of the island is you would never know you were in a big city. You run into people, but not a ton. It's so quiet. You have to stop and tell yourself, "I'm in the middle of Detroit!" It's great.
